Breast Reconstruction The microsurgical technique called DIEP allows the plastic surgeon to give women mastectomized by breast cancer the closest thing to their natural breast
This procedure allows to transplant the excess skin and fat of the abdomen without altering the muscles. With this technique results are achieved with minimal functional consequences and the aesthetic effects are spectacular .
This intervention does not deteriorate the muscle or abdominal nerves, therefore the patient can entirely enjoy her mobility and strength, and lead a completely normal life.
Breast Reconstruction (DIEP Flap)
The duration of the intervention is about 6 hours, the recovery and postoperative period is very fast. The admission is usually not more than 4 days and you can live a normal life after 3 or 4 weeks.
The reconstruction of the new areola-nipple will be carried out after 6 months, once the inflamation of transplanted tissue is totally gone. We use surgical techniques or tattoos depending on the case, in order to achieve complete symmetry with the other breast . This reconstruction will be carried out with local anesthesia and does not require hospitalization.
